Subject: Television!!!!!
Slightly incomplete (cuts are obvious...one commercial is left in, while an episode without commercials should run around 25 minutes or so), but very fun episode with the usual insanity expected from this series. Very fun. Recommended. Check it out. Now.

Subject: First time I have seen this
This is my first time seeing this show and really enjoyed it. Some segments could not be aired today due to all the political correctness but I enjoyed it.
